Since Blues replaced the gloomy days of BC (before the heads) for the sun of the AD (after December), they collected an impressive collection of victories, which according to the claim, could be their best name.
The team with the most wins since the calendar overturned 2019 played its perfect match here on Sunday in the 5-0 break of the sharks.
Think about the circumstances. Understand the nuances. Let the stage he sets sink into.
"We'll talk about it when we get there," replied Alexander Stein when asked about winning within Kling's first win of the Stanley Cup Stanley Cup since 1970.
Fair enough that there is so much to discuss from this control.
How about the start, when goalkeeper Jordon Bennington reacted to the early scare of Avender's dance and Keen the message by saving the next five shots that came quickly in a fashion fire.
Or we have to jump all the way to the end when the Blues owner Tom Stillman watched a clip of the clock party at the corporate center, where more than 10,000 Blues fans celebrated the 11th best-win franchise the following year.
"They threw away their hats!" Said Steelman.
You should have seen the smile of Dan Schwartz when he heard the second trick of the postmaster's hat that made Blue clean. And to the fan at the SAP center who brought a blues hat to ice despite the best efforts of shark fans to intervene, well done.
Schwarz now has more goals in this postseason (12) than he had in the most regular season of his career (11). It should be difficult to find a better microcosm of this team. But the point is, it's not difficult. at all. You can not throw an arrow in this roster without beating persistence and embodiment.
Each player has his next moment. We wondered what would happen if everyone pressed at once. No more wondering.
Bennington was invincible as his San José counterpart Martin Jens and his suspect glove side were to take advantage of. The sharks could get up in five minutes. Instead of San Jose trailing thanks to an Oscar Sudquist who earned the cycle of Eric Carlson. It was a catalyst of a fourth line again. Sometimes, it was the best blues. The same applies to the third. Not on a Sunday.
We said that the big stars of the Blues must come up in this series. to check. Each member on the top row had a name card for the media room after Sunday.
Vladimir Tresenko, who was publicly challenged by coach Craig after a bad luck game 1, had a tornado of physical and assistant, and the most beautiful shots you'll see, a rocket that left the Jouns clinging to the air. The top line yielded four goals, three assists, and a one-time barion by Bryden Shen, who at the end of the second period wrapped Brent Burns and Justin Brown in a head lock and held their heads. The only thing missing was a spin.
Remember that a second tranquilizing period that has often been blues islands since January and almost caused them in game 4? It was a place to be found Sunday, instead replaced by blues outside shooting 20-6 sharks in the period promised to lead three goals. Bravo.
A quick check on special teams showed the blues killed in two penalties, scoring on the only truly power-changing game, a five-point advantage over three that promised to lead four goals.
Sharks' frustration increased during the period. San Jose's anger rises with bruises. Blow the Blows The blues have been deposited on their opponents since the first game paying dividends.
Carlson is no longer a smart cracker on blues and cares more about hitting than hockey. He can not hide his groin pains until San Jose coach Pete Davor admitted that starting on Sunday is a mistake. Blues's Alex Pietrangelo hit the snow for Joe Pavelski of Sharks. Thomas Hartal also left early to cool his wounds.
DeBoer complains louder than ever about the physicality of the blues, which is humorous because he was the one who put forward Michael Hailey into the game to start fighting.
And it was the sharks, not the blues, who were punished for deep breath here – stumble, high glue, rough, interference, athletic behavior, inappropriate behavior, stumble (again), porter disorder, slashing and misconduct (again) III.
What team was it again that cared more about hitting than hockey?
I would call Duvour the most confused man in the building, but there were sharks' fans-before they headed for the departures with 13 minutes to go-who had the courage to sing disdain to ice officials. Probably forgot their team won the game 3 thanks to non-reading by Timo Mayer. It is the same illustrator who praised the happiest player in the league, the one who spent the last few minutes of the Sunday chasing a cheap shot on the knee of Pietergello.
Sharks are losing the cool, no matter how many gestures Thornton NBC shows. Blues are at its best. Bruins wait.
"We're very close now," said the blues forward Pat Marron. "The guys know it, it's in the back of the head, but we know it's a good hockey team there, too, they will not give up."
Another game like this, and the next blues flight will be Boston.
